Hope it’s ok to have started the thread as we seemed to run out of the last one a bit quickly! And I was really enjoying the thread and reading everyone’s thoughts.

I started reading the first one determined not to buy one this year.

Currently I have the Rituals one and have just ordered the Origins 12 Day one for the 12 days of Christmas!

Let the chat and decisions continue!

Regarding sorting and sorting like others I have my stash sorted into bags of cleansers, toners etc. Now that travel is back on the cards I will use them up that way.

Ah thank you for starting a new thread!

Not calendar related but someone posted on the last thread a link to an ASOS beauty box that is available from today. It looked fab value and good make up colours for me (although the Dr Paw Paw stuff is crap!) so I want to get it but just wondering if anyone knows when they generally go on sale? Been checking all morning but can't see it on the site anywhere!

I've been searching as well but nothing yet

@Babysharkdoodoodood glad it's not just me getting impatient grin

I've not bought any for myself and I'm not sure I will. I want the super duper luxury ones but I can't really justify it when I'm about to go on maternity leave.
Might get the m and s one but I think that'll be it

Babysharkdoodoodood Fri 08-Oct-21 10:33:55

Just bought a Nespresso advent instead. grin

Received Look Fantastic yesterday; quite disappointed, it has been much better on past years.
Anyway, these are for my nieces, they will love it as they just want to try new things.

Someone asked yesterday about Liberty “fans”… I have had it every year, since the first year! Not this year, feels exactly the same as the past 2 or 3 years. Have ordered Space NK and John Lewis. NAP was quite tempting but they drove me crazy with the date changes so lost my custom.

Thanks for the new thread.

I used to be terrible for having too many beauty products when I was younger and before I’d found my holy grail products but I’m much better now. I do have things sorted into categories though which makes it easy to see what I’ve got.

Thanks for starting the new thread. I was hoping someone would.

With the discussions on how we store our stashes, I decided to have a look through mine. I have an insane number of serums. Given CB has 7 serums, I've decided I'm definitely passing on that.

I've decided I'm going for the More Glow and More Self Care boxes when they come out. I will also buy a couple of bits of make up to bring it up to 24 items as, while I don't need make up, particularly as we are all still masked up at work, and will be for the foreseeable, I do like a few bits in my calendar. I'm thinking of a lipstick and a cream eye shadow or eye stick (I use them as eyeliners).

I think someone was asking about Neal's Yard on the last thread - beautyadventcalendar.net/neals-yard-the-icon-edits-advent-calendar-2021/

TheDuchessOfMN Fri 08-Oct-21 11:00:02

I can’t find the ASOS box either.
Hopefully it will be there later today

plantingandpotting Fri 08-Oct-21 11:13:38

Thanks for the new thread!

Apparently the ASOS boxes usually drop at 17:30.

I'm so sad this morning. After dithering for days and finally landing on the Space NK box, I went to check out this morning and it's sold out sad

So back to the drawing board. My next in line is probably F&M, although I might have to buy myself a sparkly Hourglass eye shadow to lessen the blow. First world hardships, eh blush

LizzieMacQueen Fri 08-Oct-21 11:20:30

@plantingandpotting I thought SpaceNK were bringing in more stock? I'm sure yesterday they had available from Oct 18, or similar? Did you sign up for an email alert?

westr Fri 08-Oct-21 11:21:52

I would have got the flannels one but already got space nk.

DrRamsesEmerson Fri 08-Oct-21 11:23:48

Checking in! I'm still mulling getting the 12 days Grazia one - it's available from today, I think.

plantingandpotting Fri 08-Oct-21 11:25:01

@LizzieMacQueen I messaged customer services to ask, and got this:

'Unfortunately, the ones we did have for pre-order have now finished and we did not have any update if they are planning to re-stock.'

...so I've signed up to the email alert but it's going to be tricky to not panic buy something else in the meantime!

LizzieMacQueen Fri 08-Oct-21 11:29:44

Oh @plantingandpotting, shame. Cult Beauty it'll have to be then! I think those on this thread rate that one highly.

plantingandpotting Fri 08-Oct-21 11:31:39

That's the tab I have open right now grin

...and I've just realised that it has 38 things!

Ah that's a shame about Space NK.

Thanks for the info regarding ASOS though smile

HeyYouGuuuuuuys Fri 08-Oct-21 11:37:44

I like the look of the cult beauty or the liberty one anyone know when CB will be released?

BrownEyedSquirrel Fri 08-Oct-21 11:37:48

@babysharkdoodoodood where did you get it?! I keep checking their website and it's out of stocksad

QueefofSheena Fri 08-Oct-21 11:42:24

Thanks for the new thread.

I haven’t checked out the contents of Flannels yet. The Grazia/Glossybox one isn’t doing anything for me.

plantingandpotting Fri 08-Oct-21 11:46:42

Someone on Twitter has done more research than me, and they've found both the 12th and 14th Oct mentioned online. So I'll be obsessively checking next week grin

plantingandpotting Fri 08-Oct-21 11:47:04

Sorry forgot to @ you in that last post, @HeyYouGuuuuuuys

Yep I'd seen the 12th mentioned a while ago on Harpers Bazaar but then the article disappeared so I was a bit sceptical.
